What to Expect
When you are ready to start your journey in therapy, give me a call at 816/866-3048 or email [email protected] to set up your free 30 minute consultation. This can be done in the office or over the phone to meet your needs. This is an opportunity for you to get questions answered and for myself to do a brief initial assessment at which time we can decide together if its a good fit. From there, we will set up your first appointment to continue the assessment process and develop a treatment plan i.e. goals or changes you would like to achieve. We will work together to determine frequency and duration of your treatment as some individuals and families may benefit or want just a few sessions while others may need or want long term therapy.
Common issues I see in my practice:
Trauma (unresolved or current)
Grief and Loss
Challenges of GLBTQ Youth and Adults
Vicarious trauma for health care professionals
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder*
Low Self-Esteem and Personal Growth
Pre and Post Divorce
Problems in the work place
General problem solving
I currently accept Cigna, United Health Care and Humana insurance plans. Private pay cost per session is $110 for individual sessions and as I don't want finances to be a barrier to treatment, I am willing to work with you on finding a rate that is affordable for you. If your insurance company accepts out of network providers, I am happy to provide you with the necessary paperwork for reimbursement.
*If appropriate, I will have a dialogue with you about holistic, nutritional and/or medical interventions for maximum benefit. We can decide together if this would be helpful and I am willing to collaborate with outside professionals with your consent.
